ACNH Art contains paintings and sculptures. As per the rules of the game, we players can buy from Jolly Redd's Treasure Trawler and donate to the museum. The works of art collected by the museum are real. This means that if you buy fake art, the Blathers Museum will not collect it. Donating unknown art to the Animal Crossing Museum is also one of the ways to quickly identify the identity of the artwork. Real and fake look different, you need to read the Animal Crossing Art Guide carefully before buying. The Blathers Museum expansion is unlocked when you donate your first real piece of art to the museum. This process takes about a day. At a later time, Redd will randomly appear on your island.
